    Looks like there's a 40% chance of rain tomorrow. Don't forget that rain gear and extra socks! :)

      When do you hope to be at the trailhead?

      I think a 0600 start time is conservative, plus or minus maybe 10 minutes

      Yeee... Instead of rain gear, the swimming suit would be good for getting some free showers....:)

      I would still bring rain gear just in case, though!
